Where are we going today?

Beyond the 50th parallel, along the North Shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, lies a remarkably beautiful scattering of some thirty limestone islands and more than 1000 granitic islets and reefs. The territory, the "Mingan Archipelago", became a national park reserve in 1984. This necklace of land carved out of the limestone bedrock is the site of spectacular natural monuments which bear witness to the never-ending wear of the sea and of the centuries. And there is an abundance of life in this strange half-world: plants of variegated hues and shapes, seabirds gathered in colonies, seals, dolphins and whales, swarming the blue vastness in which the islands bathe. Mingan Archipelago: a treasure to discover and preserve.

    dormi sur les iles Quarry et Niapisquau; très bonnes installations, visite de baleines sur les deux sites, excellentes randonnées en faisant le tour des îles. Excursion sur les iles Nue et Aux Perroquets pour voir des macareux! Si ce n'était pas si loin de chez moi, j'y retournerais demain matin!
